OPI I Want To Be A-Lone Star

I was born in Texas, lived here for 7 years, moved away for 7 years and then my family decided we needed to be home.  It's been 14 years since I've been back and I love this state.  When OPI announced that they would be coming out with the Deep in the Heart of Color/Texas collection, I was ecstatic.  I'm still wondering if I can ask a salon (nicely) to keep their display model because I am obviously a big fan of where I live.  Now this collection had 6 cremes and shimmers and then 6 "sorbet" polishes, also known as jelly polish.  Unfortunately, among nail salons, this was NOT well received, but we'll get back to this later.

I immediately gravitated to I Want To Be A-Lone Star, "a starry Texas-sky blue".  Now, I've never really see a starry sky blue (how is that even possible?) but I was still very much in love with this color.  I used a base of OPI Natural Nail, 3 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat.

It's very much a grey-blue with a tiny hint of shimmer in it.  Very nice and muted.  This has less blue than China Glaze Sea Spray but it's in the same family for me.

Despite my hesitation on blues, this is definitely a blue I'd feel fine wearing.  I think it's a good wedding color.

Indoors with the flash and you can just barely see the shimmer.  So far, a good win for my home state collection - and much more to come!
